Airway Skills Workshop

Wednesday 28th November 

 

Workshop Programme

We are proud to once again offer the popular traditional DAS workshops for those attending the meeting. These will feature a wide range of modern airway management techniques delivered by an experienced faculty of national and international experts. 

 

                        Please note 5 CPD points will be awarded.

 

 

The Airway Skills Workshop will take place in the EICC and will be followed by the Welcome Reception and opening of the trade exhibition. Registration opens at 08:30 and the workshop will begin at 09:50, allowing time for those travelling from farther afield to make their way to the EICC. Delegates will rotate through 8 stations covering:

 

  • Awake Intubation

This workshop will focus on awake intubation, allowing further fibreoptic handling practice and introducing delegates to the concept of awake videolaryngoscopy. Delegates will learn topicalisation techniques, sedation regimes and practical tips to improve success with these techniques.

 

  • Videolaryngoscopy

This workshop will allow delegates to learn techniques and practical tips for using a range of channeled, hyperangulated and Mac-style devices. They will gain knowledge on the merits of each device and get lots of hands on experience.
 

  • ORSIM Simulator and Fibreoptic Handling

This workshop will allow delegates to develop fibreoptic-handling skills utilizing both the ORSIM bronchoscopy simulator and mannequin trainers. The ORSIM can simulate a variety of airway pathologies so delegates can challenge themselves. This station will allow a lot of hands on experience.

 

  • Airway Ultrasound and Airway Decontamination

This workshop provides two separate stations allowing delegates to learn some basic airway ultrasound and introducing them to a novel technique for managing heavily contaminated airways. Delegates will be taught and get hands on practice with identifying airway sono-anatomy and assessing gastric contents on volunteers.

  • Paediatric Airway Management

This workshop will aim to refresh and build on skills for managing paediatric difficult airways and be led by a team of specialist paediatric anaesthetists. It will focus on videolaryngoscopy and fibreoptic techniques.
 

  • Tracheostomy Emergencies

The workshop will discuss and allow practical simulation of managing tracheostomy emergencies. Delegates will learn to recognise “red flags” in patients with tracheostomy and a simple structure to managing problems in line with National Tracheostomy Safety Project guidance.

 

  • Emergency Front of Neck Access

The workshop will discuss and allow practical simulation of managing tracheostomy emergencies. Delegates will learn to recognise “red flags” in patients with tracheostomy and a simple structure to managing problems in line with National Tracheostomy Safety Project guidance.

  • Intubation via Supraglottic Airway Devices

The workshop will discuss and allow practical simulation of managing tracheostomy emergencies. Delegates will learn to recognise “red flags” in patients with tracheostomy and a simple structure to managing problems in line with National Tracheostomy Safety Project guidance.
